J.R.: Dad? Dad, what happened? Are you there?
Man: You're going to have to call back.
J.R.: Wait, wait. Who is this? Is my father all right?
J.R.: Hello? Erica.
Jesse: Hey, where you going?
Erica: Well, J.R. is obviously upset.
Jesse: And he's obviously under arrest.
Erica: I'm actually here to post his bail. How much should I make the check out for?
Jesse: Erica, put your money away. The boy's not going anywhere. Judge thinks he's a flight risk.
Erica: Well, with Adam out of town and -- and J.R. stuck in here, who's taking care of Little Adam?
Jesse: Don't you worry about it. He's in good hands. I promise you.
Angie: Little A, you have to eat something. How are you going to grow big and strong?
Little A: Like Daddy?
Angie: Yes, exactly like him.
Little A: Is Daddy in jail?
Angie: Daddy's at the police station, and my husband Jesse, he is taking very good care of him.
Little A: I want to go home.
Angie: Oh, sweetheart, I know, and Daddy's working real hard on that.
Little A: I want to go home now.
Natalia: Whoa. Little man on the loose. Who's this guy?
David: So, we're all ready to go, right?
Krystal: Well, I feel like I just got here. What's the rush?
David: Well, the custody hearing is tomorrow. I just want to make sure that we're prepared.
Jake: Hey. What's going on in here?
Krystal: I guess I'm going home.
Jake: Uh, no. Gail, can you help Krystal back to bed? This patient isn't going anywhere.
David: Try and stop her.
Zach: Let's do this. Right here. Right now.
Zach: You may want to get that. It's probably my wife.
Ryan: Soon to be ex-wife, so I'm told.
Zach: Is bedding Kendall part of your deal of taking me down? Because it's not working. I'm still standing here.
Ryan: My issues are with you, Zach, so leave Kendall out of this.
Zach: Ok. So here we are, you and me. What are you going to do? You want to bring me to my knees? You'll probably have to kill me. I don't think you have it in you.
Angie: Hey, you just can't run off like that, Little A, especially not on an empty stomach.
Natalia: Hey, you. What you got there?
Little A: Tuna.
Natalia: Tuna? That's kind of boring, huh? You know what I think would be more fun? Pie. Mm, do you like pie? You know what? I think I know who could hook us up with some pie.
Natalia: Too cute. Who is he?
Angie: J.R. Chandler's son.
Natalia: Oh my God. That's right. Um, from The Comeback bar, the night of the tornados.
Natalia: What's he doing here?
Angie: Well, J.R.'s been arrested, so Jesse and I are looking after Little A until permanent custody is decided.
Natalia: Decided? Who else would he stay with besides his dad?
Angie: Krystal and David. They're suing for full custody.
Natalia: Mm, so you guys are like foster parents?
Angie: No, sort of like the alternative to foster parents. I mean, no one knows Little A is here. His family is capable of going to extremes, so please don't say anything.
Natalia: I'm used to it. This just keeps getting more and more interesting. Hmm. Here you go.
Little A: I want to play with some toys.
Angie: Little A, I think that can be arranged. I kept a few toys of Frankie's. I'll be right back.
Natalia: And while she goes to get the toys, I think we should draw a picture.
Little A: I could give it to my daddy.
Erica: Jesse, can I at least talk to him.
Jesse: No. You are not his family, you are not his lawyer, and, I'm sorry, those are just the rules.
Erica: Well, you're just going to have to change them.
Jake: These are your rules. I don't know why I have to explain your rules to you.
David: Lose the attitude.
Jake: Krystal is a head trauma patient. Don't you care about her? She should be observed for at least 24 hours.
David: I examined Krystal myself. She's fine.
Jake: She's not your patient. She's Angie's patient, and I am covering Angie's patient. I -- I'm just following hospital procedures.
David: No, you're just being a Martin ass. Now just sign the damn release papers. All right, all right, all right. We all set to go?
Krystal: You know what? I'm really feeling a little woozy still. Is this a good idea?
David: No, no, no. The hospital lights will do that. Look, you're going to feel much better when you get outside. Nurse Gail, thank you for your help. I'll take it from here.
Krystal: I guess you're probably right. Home, my own bed, it sounds like it would be magic.
David: Yeah, well, um, the bed is going to have to wait. We have an important meeting that we have to get to.
Krystal: A meeting? Right now?
David: Yeah. You do want Little A, don't you?
Krystal: Well, you know I do.
David: All right. Then stop asking so many questions, and let's go.
Krystal: Wait, wait. Wait a minute. Why are you being so secretive here? Where are we going? And -- and to see whom?
David: Ok, we're going to see someone who had helped to make sure that the custody hearing goes our way.
Krystal: Wait a minute. As much as I love my grandson, I am not going to be part of anything illegal.
Colby: Am I interrupting?
David: Actually, this isn't a great time.
Krystal: No, no it is. It's a fine time. I'm -- I'm glad you're here.
J.R.: Have you heard anything from my father?
Erica: Just that he's all right.
J.R.: I was talking to him on the phone. His alarms went off. They wouldn't tell me what was going on. I think I made him worse.
Erica: Well, what exactly did you say to your father?
J.R.: I just said I was on my way to the airport when they pulled me over, cuffed me, and took Little Adam into custody.
Erica: Well, ok. What's done is done. So when is this temporary custody hearing?
Erica: Ok. That was fast. That works well for David, doesn't it?
J.R.: Yeah, doesn't it? He gets to show up bright eyed, suit and tie while I'm in an orange jumpsuit.
Erica: Yeah, first the warrant, then the hearing, now you're held here without bail.
J.R.: Yeah, David's got to have somebody in his back pocket.
Erica: Do you know the judge's name?
J.R.: Salke. Have you heard of him?
Erica: Yeah, it's just that we've never met.
J.R.: Thank you for trying to get me out.
Erica: Oh, I'm not through trying yet. We're going to make good news for Adam. We are going to give him such good news, it's going to make him get better. And tomorrow when you fight for your son, I'm not going to let you show up in a jumpsuit. Orange just isn't your color.
Kendall: My mother thinks I should let you go, but I'm sorry -- I'm sorry, but I can't, Ryan. We're connected. We always have been. And, yes, I know, I know I -- I married Zach, and I know we built a family together, but I think deep down somehow I knew. I mean, how can I save my marriage if I don't even know I want it to be saved? And now you're pulling away, so -- so that's why I'm calling. Um, I'm -- I'm letting you know that I figured out what I have to do.
Zach: All right. So, if it isn't about Kendall, what is it about?
Ryan: I'm surprised your personal private investigator didn't fill you in.
Zach: No, I don't know what Aidan says half the time. I want you to tell me. Are you done hacking into my computer? You got everything you wanted?
Ryan: Yeah, I did. I got everything I wanted, everything I needed. It's over, Zach. About one hour ago, a European consortium launched a hostile takeover of Cambias Industries. Apparently they had some help from an inside man and his bank account.
Zach: Am I looking at him?
Ryan: Hey, I gave you Cambias Industries, right? So I'm just taking it back. Everything you had is now mine.
Ryan: You might want to answer that. It's probably your CFO calling. Or should I say my CFO?
Zach: So all this because what happened to Greenlee?
Ryan: Not what happened to Greenlee, what you did to Greenlee.
Ryan: I have a different theory. Do you mind? I think you're using Greenlee's death, because you still want to feel righteous about taking me down when the whole time this is what you wanted.
Ryan: Are you serious?
Zach: Mm-hmm. Just sitting there watching and waiting, waiting for the perfect moment.
Ryan: The perfect moment. Greenlee is dead.
Zach: And now you're sleeping with my wife. Perfect time to take my company.
Ryan: I never gave a damn about your company.
Ryan: You took everything that meant anything to me.
Zach: It's not going to bring Greenlee back.
Ryan: Oh, I know.
Zach: So how is it? Sweet taste of victory -- is it everything you thought, or are you just as miserable as you were before?
Colby: I feel terrible. Thank you for not pressing charges.
Krystal: Oh, come on. You know I would never do that to you.
Colby: I just -- I freaked out. There was J.R. with Little A and then you showed up to stop him.
David: Because your brother was breaking the law.
Colby: Please, J.R. loves Little A more than anything.
David: Love alone is not enough to keep my grandson safe. He needs a strong, stable home.
Colby: He has that at home with us.
David: If a judge decides that, that's exactly where he'll stay.
Krystal: Look, I hear what you're saying. I do. But David's right. We need to let the judge decide what happens from here on.
Krystal's voice: Will you at least tell me where we're going?
David's voice: Just a quick stop to the courthouse.
Colby: Hey, Jake.
Jake: Hey. What are you doing here?
Colby: Uh, apologizing to Krystal, begging for mercy from David, you know, just a normal night.
Jake: Let me guess. The begging for mercy part with David was a "no."
Colby: That's the thing. I don't know. He said "what happens to Little A is up to a judge." It was actually weirdly fair of him.
Jake: Hmm. "Weirdly" being the operative word.
Natalia: All aboard.
Natalia: Chuga chuga, chuga chuga, chuga chuga, chuga chuga, choo choo. It's so cool.
Jesse: Hey, gorgeous.
Jesse: How are things on the home front?
Angie: How do they look?
Jesse: Well, you look good enough to eat. Everybody else looks happy.
Angie: Oh, boy. Do you remember that thing? Frankie was obsessed with it.
Angie: It's all he ever wanted to play with. Boy, one day he's playing with trains, and the next he's on his honeymoon.
Jesse: Hey, whoa whoa. What's all this, huh?
Angie: I just miss feeling needed, I guess.
Jesse: Back up. I need you.
Angie: Yeah, I'm just talking about the way Cass and Frankie needed me when they were little, and now the way Little A needs us now.
Jesse: Yeah, well, enjoy it while you can. Soon enough he's going to be back with his father or crazy Dr. David.
Angie: I tell you. A family at war over an innocent little boy, it's -- it's not right.
Erica: Hi. Have you seen David?
Jake: Well, lucky for you. You just missed him.
Erica: And what about Krystal? Isn't she still here?
Jake: He -- he took her with him.
Erica: Ok, I assumed he dragged her home.
Jake: No, you don't. You assume something else. Why is that?
Erica: Do you happen to know where they're headed.
Jake: Uh, David said something about the courthouse.
Erica: The courthouse? That's strange. The courthouse is closed.
David: I trust everything's in order.
Judge Salke: J.R. Chandler will be spending the night in jail.
David: Great news. So he'll be exhausted and disheveled for the hearing tomorrow, perfect. Not that it should matter though, right?
Judge Salke: I'm prepared to rule in your favor. I just -- the arrest warrant, the sped up trial date. I'm worried it will look too obvious.
David: Then I guess you better be convincing, otherwise that pesky little drug problem I helped cover up will become public record. You are aware of that, right?
Judge Salke: What can I do for you?
Krystal: David --
David: I was hoping you can prep us for tomorrow. You know, tell us which points to hit home, which ones to gloss over.
Krystal: David, David. Excuse me. Come on. What is this? I thought we were fighting fair.
David: What we are doing is fighting for our grandson.
David: No. All right, yes. I got a warrant pushed through, and I got J.R. to spend the night in jail. But he was a flight risk, Krystal. You know that. You were there. Look. Little A belongs with us, so we can give him the home that Babe wasn't able to, right? Isn't that what we both want? All right. Come here. So, what do we need to do?
Judge Salke: The brunt of the onus is going to be on your wife. As the potential mother figure, you'll need to convince me that you're the one for the job.
David: Well, that shouldn't be a problem.
Judge Salke: We can go over some questions now, if you like. Mrs. Hayward, I can only take this so far -- painting your son-in-law as unfit. If you want to raise your grandson --
David: Oh, she does.
Judge Salke: Then the rest is up to you.
Jesse: Uh oh. I know that look.
Angie: What look?
Jesse: You want another baby.
Angie: Are you out of your mind? No, I was just thinking -- hey, what are you guys doing back home?
Frankie: You are never going to guess what happened to us.
Natalia: So tell us.
Frankie: What are you doing on the -- well, shucky ducky quack quack. Is that my train?
Angie: Uh, the one and only.
Jesse: Shucky ducky quack quack?
Frankie: I didn't even know we had this thing. Hey, what's up, little man? You mind if I play with you?
Jesse: What was all that you were saying about all grown up?
Krystal: I love my grandson with everything in me. He's -- he's all I have left of my daughter, Babe. And I promised her, you know, right -- right before she died that I would look after him, and that's what I'm going to do. Now, is J.R. the worst father in the world? No. But is he the best role model for Little A? Look, this isn't about them versus us. This is about a little boy who needs two stable, loving parents, and I honestly believe that we can give him that.
Judge Salke: You sure you haven't been practicing? That sounded very sincere.
Krystal: Because it is. All I want is for our grandson to be with us.
Judge Salke: With a testimony like that, you'll get your wish.
Krystal: Really? Even though I wasn't awarded custody of Jenny? I mean, I know J.R. is going to bring that up.
David: No, it's all right. I already spoke with Judge Salke about that.
Judge Salke: If Mr. Chandler attempts to go there, I'll make sure he's shut down.
David: You hear that? It's going to work out. Well, thank you, Judge, for extending your office hours. We'll see you tomorrow.
[Knock at door]
Judge Salke: You forget something?
Erica: No, I don't believe so. Hello, Judge Salke. Oh, don't tell me I need to introduce myself.
Judge Salke: Of course not. You're Erica Kane.
Ryan: Let me ask you something. What's it like to live a life where nothing is ever your fault? Am -- am I wrong right now? Then, please, name one thing that you actually take responsibility for. Just one thing.
Zach: I wouldn't even know where to start.
Ryan: Really? Well, I do.
Zach: What do you want? You want me to say I'm sorry?
Ryan: No. I want you to say that you killed her. I want you to say if it wasn't for you and your sick flirtation with Reese that Greenlee would still be alive. That's what I want.
Zach: You're not going to get what you want.
Ryan: Why not?
Zach: Because what happened to Greenlee was an accident.
Ryan: It was not an accident. It was avoidable. One different choice.
Zach: A different choice by me?
Ryan: By you would've changed everything. If you had chosen -- if you had chosen to tell your wife the truth, if you had chosen not to take Reese --
Zach: And if you had chosen to keep your mouth shut, we wouldn't be here. Do you really -- do you honestly think that I don't feel anything, I don't -- don't see Greenlee every day?
Ryan: Yeah, I can imagine that out of guilt.
Zach: No, out of love, because she was my friend, and I know that's hard for you to understand, but she was.
Ryan: "Was." Kind of like how Cambias was your company.
Zach: Ok, well, take it. Get it done.
Ryan: I -- I was expecting this is the part where you pretend like you don't care. Well, it's true. I own Cambias, and obviously the casinos as well, right? You know that. But I'll play along. It was great doing business with you. Please have my office cleaned out by tonight.
Zach: This is it? This is it? After all your chest thumping about man to man, this is how you -- wow. Greenlee would be embarrassed for you and Kendall.
Ryan: Thanks to you, we will never know.
Erica: Well, you're working awfully late this evening.
Judge Salke: Big hearing tomorrow.
Erica: Yes, Little Adam Chandler's custody suit. So I've heard, yes. Tell me something, Judge Salke, isn't it a conflict of interest to be meeting with one of the parties?
Judge Salke: I'm sorry?
Erica: David and Krystal Hayward. I just saw them leave your office.
Judge Salke: Oh, yes. Um -- they wanted to discuss a few things.
Erica: But not about Little Adam Chandler's custody hearing, I hope, because that I know would be completely illegal. Oh, I happen to have interviewed quite a few judges for my show, "New Beginnings." I should have you on sometime, Judge Salke.
Judge Salke: Ms. Kane, if you have a point?
Erica: Of course. Right now J.R. Chandler is being detained in a holding cell. I assume that's at your direction? I would like J.R. to be released immediately, tonight. He has every right to be well-rested and look presentable when he has his day in court.
Judge Salke: Being that I'm presiding tomorrow, I don't think that would be appropriate.
Erica: But secret meetings with the Haywards is appropriate? No, I really see only one option here, that you recuse yourself from this case.
Judge Salke: The night before the hearing? How would that look?
Erica: Well, it wouldn't look nearly as bad as what I just walked in on. Bribery, blackmail -- well, you're the judge, what would you call it?
Judge Salke: Are you threatening me?
Erica: No, I'm giving you a choice. As long as J.R. Chandler is released tonight and there is a fair and impartial judge tomorrow, my lips are sealed. And lucky for you I happen to have Chief Hubbard on speed-dial.
Randi: We were stuck for seven hours.
Angie: Oh, no.
Frankie: Yeah, and then they decided to cancel the flight.
Randi: When we tried to find another one, we realized that they had lost our luggage.
Jesse: You're kidding me.
Frankie: And then we had to wait another six hours just for them to locate it.
Randi: So by that time we were so over it that we just decided to come home.
Natalia: I know this isn't nearly as important as your airport drama, but what do you do when this thing gets stuck?
Frankie: Well, I am the master.
Angie: Sweetheart, you must be so disappointed.
Randi: Yeah. I mean, you only get one honeymoon, right? And I was really looking forward to Hawaii. I've never been. But mostly I was just looking forward to spending time with him.
Angie: Oh, give my baby a big hug.
[Cell phone rings]
Judge Salke: Judge Salke here.
Jesse: What can I do for you, Judge Salke?
Judge Salke: Release J.R. Chandler from holding tonight.
David: Toys, videos, the works. I want all of it, ok? And money is no object. That sounds great. That sounds great. Just -- just make sure it gets here as soon as possible, ok? Excellent. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Krystal: Wow, someone is excited.
David: Ah, you kidding? This is going to be perfect.
Krystal: Let's just not get ahead of ourselves. I mean, this is a hearing for temporary custody.
David: Oh, no, no. Once they see how devoted we are, permanent is just going to be a formality. How are you feeling? Is your head still throbbing?
Krystal: Actually I feel better than I have in ages. Just seeing you like this, all full of hope and smiles, it's what I've been waiting for.
David: Me, too. Since Babe died, this is the happiest I've been.
Krystal: Well, except for our wedding.
David: Oh, yeah, well, I mean, the wedding was --
David: The foundation, you know, the filling, if you will. This -- this is the --
Krystal: The whipped cream on top.
David: Exactly. Now who thought we'd make such a great dessert together, huh?
Krystal: Never stop looking at me like that.
David: I couldn't, even if I tried.
Kendall's voice: And now you're -- you're pulling away, so -- so that's why I'm calling. Um, I'm -- I'm letting you know that I've figured what I have to do. I'm leaving town for a while, and I'm taking the boys. I just -- I don't know, I just -- I have to get away. I want to be with you, Ryan. And if you don't feel the same, and -- and if you can't do this, then I completely understand, and I promise you I won't push you. That's why I'm leaving town, to give you space. But if you want to be with me, and if you think we could give it a try, then please come stop me. The car is picking us up at 7:00. If I don't see you, I guess good-bye. I hope you understand.
Francesca: Is it true? Has Cambias been taken over?
Zach: Let's ask this guy.
[Zach punches Aidan in the face]
Aidan: What the hell was that for?
Zach: Ryan stole Cambias.
Aidan: You're kidding.
Zach: Does it look like I'm smiling right now? No. You put up firewalls, he swooped in and took it.
Aidan: How did he --
Zach: I don't know how. I don't care. And by the way, the deal is off.
Aidan: So that's it, huh? Annie loses out.
Zach: Pretty much.
Aidan: He took your company, he took your wife -- Ryan made out with everything. At least now you know how it feels.
Zach: Oh, God, don't compare yourself to me. Get out of my casino.
Aidan: Ryan's casino now, isn't it?
Zach: Oh, you know this isn't over, right?
Aidan: I'm quite sure this is just the beginning.
Francesca: Mr. Slater. I spoke with a number of the casino employees, and everyone says the same thing.
Francesca: If you go, we go.
Kendall: So that's the deal. What?
Rachael: I was just wondering where Mr. Slater fits in.
Kendall: I -- I left him a message and explained everything. So Zach knows what's going on.
Rachael: Ok. So what can I do?
Kendall: Well, you can -- you can help me pack. I'm taken care of, but the boys are a different story.
Rachael: I'm on it.
[Kendall recalls past events]
Kendall: Ok, thanks. Oh, yeah, work it. Come on, come on. Show me those teeth, all eight of them.
Zach: Wow, what are you doing?
Kendall: Wait -- what?
Zach: The green one is for Spike.
Kendall: Yes, yes, it's emerald. It's his birthstone. It's beautiful.
Zach: The blue one -- did you see the blue one?
Kendall: The blue, yes, it's a topaz. Oh, come on, you like topaz. You picked it out, I'm sure. This is for November.
Zach: Yeah, so don't do December, all right? November is the day. Ah. Yeah. Now we eat. What? Your turn next.
Kendall: Ah. Oh, I was just thinking how perfect the two of you look. Thank you. This will go down as the most perfect 48 hours of my life.
Singer: And I hold on tight to the memory of you and I can I hold on you tonight and say good-bye. Staring out my window following your ghost, sometimes I turn around, and you're going and I still believe in what we once had much more than we think. You know the stars are all lit up tonight, but my heart is crumbling. Can I hold on tight to the memory of you and I. Can I hold on to you tonight and say good-bye, say good-bye. Can I hold on tight and say goodbye
Jesse: I just got a call from the judge himself, Judge Salke? You're free on your own recognizance.
Jesse: Go figure. Can't imagine why the man changed his mind. But I suggest you use your freedom to prep yourself for the fight of your life.
Colby: I'll pull the car around.
J.R.: Jesse --
Jesse: Don't even go there.
J.R.: Can't you just tell me where he is?
Jesse: You know I can't do that, Junior. Hey. Your boy's in good hands. I wouldn't have it any other way.
J.R.: Thank you.
David: So this is what it feels like, huh?
David: To be complete. All right, think about it. After tomorrow, under this roof I'm going to have everything I ever wanted. Well, almost everything.
David: Yeah. But at least now we can move forward, right? Honor our daughter with every single day.
Krystal: Honor her by loving her son and taking good care of him.
David: Now speaking about that beautiful boy --
Krystal: Mm, wow. Who is here?
David: Well, I'm assuming the delivery man with the presents.
David: Yeah, well, I guess he heard the enthusiasm in my voice.
Erica: Oh, my. Am I interrupting something?
David: How astute. So if you don't mind --
Erica: Well, it's about the custody hearing. There's been a change in plans.
Randi: Well, good night, Little A.
Frankie: Good night. Thanks for playing with me, man. Man, I am so sorry the honeymoon was a bust.
Randi: Hey, I am Mrs. Franklin Hubbard. I can deal with anything.
Frankie: Yeah, but Hawaii? Man, I really wanted to give that to you.
Randi: The beach, your parents' floor -- doesn't really matter. As long as I've got you, I am good.
Frankie: Well, then, choo-choo.
Frankie: Prepare to be good a very, very long time.
David: This had better be good.
Erica: Oh, it is. Well, maybe not for you, but J.R. is very happy.
David: Oh, really? Why is that? Are the faucets at the police station gushing single malt?
Erica: J.R.'s been released. He's at the mansion right now, even as we speak. As for your friend, Judge Salke, he won't be able to make it to the hearing tomorrow.
David: What are you talking about?
Erica: He's been replaced.
Erica: Well, number one, I smelled a rat, and I hate rats. Number two, I'm looking out for a very good friend of mine.
Krystal: And that friend would be Adam.
Erica: Careful, Krystal. We wouldn't want to rupture something.
David: You had absolutely no right --
Erica: Neither did you. I just wanted to be sure that if there's a fight tomorrow, it's a fair one.
Zach: This is no time to quit your job. Besides, the casino needs you.
Francesca: What will you do?
Zach: I don't know. I guess I should be cleaning out my office. There's really nothing I need in there.
Francesca: Not even your autographed Red Wings jersey?
Zach: You're right. I need that. Send it to the club.
Francesca: There's really nothing else you want to take with you?
Zach: Yeah, there is one thing.
[Zach takes Myrtle's picture off the wall]
Kendall: Ok, I think that's everything.
Rachael: The car's been out front for over 15 minutes.
Kendall: I know.
Rachael: So should I get the boys?
Kendall: Ah, yeah, yeah. I'll just -- I'll bring the stuff out to the car.
Kendall: You're late.
Ryan: But not too late.
[Ryan and Kendall hug]
